Our first born graduated from pre-school on Friday, May 22nd. I had the incredible honor of leading his ceremony, which made it even more memorable and special for our family! I will never forget the look on Shepherd's face when he walked up on stage, and looked back at me over his shoulder with a huge sweet smile...I wanted to stop the ceremony, run over and push his little cap off his forehead to give him a smooch and a bear hug. He walked with 37 of his closest friends and they all were absolutely adorable! Friday, also marked my last day of being the head Director of Sharing Tree...such an incredibly bittersweet day! It was a perfect ending to the school year with tears of joy (there wasn't a dry eye in the house!), and a deep feeling of contentment.
